Default TeamFortress 2 on Live is a joke.

Man, I was so excited this morning when I got the chance to go pick up the orange box. I've been waiting to play TF2 for almost 9 years, and what do you know? Live is just like 9 years ago when I was playing on my 33.6 modem. Laggy as hell. I'm not sure what the update did today but it didn't do jack to fix TF2.

I'm pissed. I've tried to play around 12 games and over 75% I've been booted out due to a drop in connection. The other half the lag is to horrible to play.

For attempting to play TF2 on a console the lord has smiteth thee.

Game is insane tho, do yourself a favor and play it on a pc like it's supposed to be played. It's never gonna be the same game on a console cuz of the controls.

I can only imagine trying to aim the soldiers rocket launcher just right on a gamepad, bad news.

Things like this always happen when a new game launches, the kinks will be ironed out...just gotta be patient. I'm looking forward to picking up my copy soon, if TF2 isnt working out I'll just keep myself occupied with HL2...

I love Xbox Live. It's the sole reason to get a 360 over the ps3 in my opinion. $50 a year gets me great service and awesome incentives.

It could be worse. It could be like Wii Connect 24.

I have found that ranked matches have terrible lag and connection drops, but in my experience, player matches are much better. Sure, you don't improve your rank, but you still get achievements and have fun.

Ranked matches are worse Lag wise...but its impossible to get an achievement with the amount of game drops..I mean how the hell am I supposed to win 30 games if everyone drops out!
